I picked up my first SKS at a show over the weekend. The bore looks to be in fairly good shape, and it fired well at the range. The stock is very banged up and has alot of carving in it: somebody's scratched in their name (Ahmet), and a handcarved "Fleur-de-Lis" symbol, with four letters surrounding it (not all the letters are identifiable). I was told this SKS was a Yugo. It has a bayonet, grenade launcher & sight, and a flashhider/muzzle brake? This is about the extent of what I know about it. I can't tell for sure if it's Yugo or not, the only identification on the metal parts are matching numbers on the receiver cover, bolt, trigger housing, stock and barrel. It also says 59/66 7.62x39 on the barrel. (I'm not 100% positive of the 59, I'm at work now, and going from memory). I was wondering if anybody out there can help me with a few questions. First, how can I tell if this gun is pre-ban or not? I want to know if it's legal for me to remove the 10-round integral mag and use 30-round detachable ones. Even if it's post-ban, would removing the bayonet/grenade launcher and flash hider make it legal for me to use the 30-rounders? The only reason I bought this gun is its low cost, and the low cost of 7.62s. I'm going to use this for target practice, and have no need to bayonet or grenade anybody. I'm also not very fond of the beat-up stock, though I do wonder if the "Fleur-de-Lis" means anything. I plan on changing it, but I haven't found anything besides folding synthetics. Anyone know where to find a new wood one? Would a folding synthetic make it illegal to use 30-round mags? I am aware of the "evil features" list, but don't know exactly how it works, or how it applies to what I want to do. Is there a definitive listing somewhere? I tried sifting through the atf.gov site, but couldn't find anything. Sorry for so many questions in one message, I'm just excited about this gun, and don't want to get myself into trouble.
